RobMoSys opens first call for proposals

Date:11 July 2017 - By:Sebastian Weisenburger - Category:

The EU-funded project RobMoSys (Composable Models and Software for Robotic Systems) provides funding for projects which help to create better models, as the basis for better tools and better software, which then allow to build better robotic systems. The first RobMoSys Open Call was opened on July 10th and will be closing on October 9th, 2017 (5 pm Brussels time). There will be 6-7 projects selected to start on March 1st 2018 with a runtime of 12 months.

RobMoSys asks for contributions that realise a step change in system-level composition for robotics, and that demonstrate this in real-world scenarios. The step change must not only be visible in the modelling foundation of the contributions, but also in the industry-grade quality of their realisation. Indeed, in the medium-term future, companies should be able to rely on the RobMoSys outcomes to build robotic applications by composing high quality composable models and associated software functions.

Proposals need to illustrate their contribution in a relevant use-case with coverage of all of the following: tooling, models and associated software (implementations that realise the models, and that are created/configured by the tooling) demonstrated on system-level prototypical scenarios in, e.g., navigation and manipulation.

Potential applicants can learn more about the call on the RobMoSys website. The proposal submission system is available here.
